"Backstage with Blackstone" Blackstone demonstrates a math trick using a dime and a penny. Using this trick, he's able to determine whether a particular coin is in the person's left hand or right hand. He then does the trick again, using a nickel and a penny. In the case of the second trick, there's no actual math involved, purely psychology. He's able to figure it out based on the amount of time the person takes to think before answering his question.
"Nine, Nine, Nine" A country western number by "The House Band" about a special property of the number nine. It seems that nine is a special number when it comes to multiplication. You can multiply any number times nine, then add the digits of the number you get and they will always add up to nine. It even works with larger numbers. For example, sometimes the digits of the number you get may add up to something like 18. But it still works, as 1+8=9. "Warning" A warning that when solving a problem, it helps to know what type of solution you're looking for. "Your Map" A kid's going on a trip and he's pulling the old "Are we there yet?" routine. So the driver of the car (his brother?) shows him how to use the scale on a map to figure out what time they'll get to their destination. "Mathnet: Problem of the Missing Monkey Part 2" Kate and George head to the zoo, where they find that the combination lock to Grunt the gorilla's cage has been unlocked. They also speak with the zookeeper, who tells tem about Jane Rice Burroughs, a friend of Grunt's. They return to their office, where they try to figure out Grunt's path with the aid of a map and a compass. The office intercom sounds and Grunt's friend Jane is admitted into the office. They consider the combination with her. With 36 numbers, there are 36*36*36, or 46,656 combinations. Of course, you also have to go in the right direction. Kate and George suggest that although it's highly unprobable that Grunt could have unlocked it, it is possible. Jane doesn't think so. She thinks that someone gorilla-napped him. One reason for this: Grunt has a doll that's always with him. However, it's not with him now, it's still in his case. Then, they get another phone call. A pizzeria was knocked down. All of the money was taken and two "large pies" - to go. That's not good because as Jane explained, Grunt's favorite snack food is pizza.moreless
